With a backdrop of the world’s coolest cars, some of the biggest names on the Bay Area music scene are heading down to Half Moon Bay Airport for the Pacific Coast Dream Machines Show, Sunday, April 26.
“We’ve put together an excellent lineup of professional musicians that will rival the quality of the world-class machines on display,” said entertainment director Grant Walters, a longtime supporter of the event beneficiary, the Coastside Adult Day Health Center.
Kicking things off on the main stage at 10 a.m. is the Terry Hiatt Band. Terry has been playing for 50+ years and in that time has played and recorded with artists such as Terrie Odabi, the late Sista Monica Parker, Paula Harris, E C Scott, Lydia Pense, Lara Price, the Jerry Miller Band with Terry Haggerty, Chris Cain, and Kid Anderson. Considered one of the the best guitarists of his era, Hiatt has played country with the Appaloosa Band, the Keller Sisters, and Chris Bigford and has fronted several original projects like Big Science, Running With Scissors, and Amazing Colossal Guys. The current lineup has Derrick Martin (D’Mar) on drums, and Joey Fabian on bass playing a combination of originals and general guitar gumbo.
Catch EllaHarp All Day Near the South End Beer Tent!An instrument like the harp doesn’t exactly inspire imagery of driving bass lines and mainstream appeal, and that’s what Bay Area based harpist, singer/songwriter Ella Dawn Jenkins, aka EllaHarp is working to change. Armed with a fresh take on contemporary blues, the musical lineage of composer/arranger Gordon Jenkins, and a unique instrument she designed for the purpose, EllaHarp is pushing the harp out of type-cast genre constraints and doing things differently. Her debut 2018 album ‘Who Asked You Back’ blends folk roots with blues-y riffs and a splash of mainstream pop. Stripped down solo harp and voice meets electric guitar from Sam Eigen (Smash Mouth), creepy mythology meets attitude-laden break up songs, and the harp meets a whole new vault of possibilities.
Taking the stage at 11:30 a.m. will be The Inciters. This sensational 10-piece band from Santa Cruz has no problem filling a room with the powerful sound of soul with a full four piece horn section and three vocals taking turns on the leads and bringing some sweet back-ups otherwise, along with some get-the-crowd-moving dance moves. The Inciters have toured Europe often and play up and down the west side of the country constantly promoting their albums and singles, all available on good old fashioned vinyl. This band brings the party with them wherever they are performing!
Hitting the stage at 2 p.m. is Wee Willie Walker & Terrie Odabi with The Anthony Paule Soul Orchestra. Hailing from San Francisco, Wee Willie Walker and the Anthony Paule Soul Orchestra epitomize the time honored, authentic spirit of American Soul Music. In 2015 they met and made their debut public appearance at the perpetually revered Porretta Soul Festival, in Porretta, Italy. Inspired by their magic of that performance and immediate mutual respect, they agreed to continue working together on a permanent basis. The group recently released their first recording collaboration, AFTER A WHILE. Much of today’s music seems tobe incomplete, as far as honest, emotional vocal expressions are concerned, and the listener is often left needing more. AFTER A WHILE fills that need, and stands alone. Relatable, empathetic songwriting; pure, heart-sung vocals; and supportive, passionate instrumental performances seduce the listener’s ear with unexpected bliss.
In keeping with a long-standing Dream Machines tradition, festivalgoers can expect to see special surprise guests take the stage thoughout the day.
So, while enjoying all the amazing machines, warbirds, monster trucks, flying motorcycles, skydivers and world-class cars, be sure to head for the Concert Stage for some monstrously good music at this year’s Pacific Coast Dream Machines Show, Sunday, April 26 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Half Moon Bay Airport.
